Moroccan Spice Pages and Cards

Moroccan Spice Pages and Cards

Karen Wyngaard

I recently attended a scrapbooking weekend at Silver Birch Ranch. I was anxious to get some scrapping done, so I grabbed my Moroccan Spice Lite kit, along with several other kits to work on over the weekend.

Using Tricia's ALSB instructions, I constructed the Lite pages in about an hour, and by the time another hour passed, I had eight pages completed with photos and journaling. Now THAT'S efficient scrapbooking!

The first four pages were perfect for scrapping some of my favorite photos from the August and October 2015 Retreats. Wasn't it nice of my friend Edie to wear purple so she'd match the layouts?

The Filigree Bands add a bit of drama to the finished pages.

The last four pages feature my two youngest children, Max and Emma. We did a "photo shoot" at the park a few blocks from our house. The Moroccan Spice color palette matched well with the early fall backdrop in the photos.

I love how Tricia's design included the fussy-cut medallion from the Lite Kraft Cutapart adhered with Foam Adhesive Circles for dimension. The gold Dazzles Stitched Medallion Stickers add just the right touch of sparkle.

After I finished the pages, I created a few quick cards with Moroccan Spice UM stamps:

Love the CS Gold Metallic ink with this border stamp!

I experimented with a couple of my newest embossing folders, too. They match the Moroccan theme perfectly!

After embossing an ivory panel, I inked the raised areas with Amethyst, heat-set, then carefully colored in the open areas with Gelatos.

This time I inked the inside of the embossing folder with Topaz ink before running the ivory panel through the Big Shot. I really like the rustic look of the background.

For the final card, the tile image was stamped with the CS Watermark ink, heat embossed with Gold EP and colored with Gelatos.

Happy crafting!
